The follow-up to acclaimed pianist/composer Monty Alexander's Grammy-nominated 2011 release, 2014's Harlem-Kingston Express, Vol. 2: River Rolls On features more of Alexander's eclectic mix of reggae/jazz and Latin music. This is expansive, highly engaging music that crosses the boundaries between acoustic jazz, instrumental pop, fusion, and more.

The River Rolls On is the second CD by Monty's Harlem-Kingston Express, a followup to the collective's Grammy-nominated 2011 live album for Motema. The group embodies Alexander's desire to merge the two styles: Monty says while the recording was made in New York, it made him feel as if he was in a local club in his hometown of Kingston. For this new one, Monty is joined by his core ensemble of Hassan Shakur on acoustic bass, guitarist Yotam Silberstein, and drummers Karl Wright and Obed Calvaire. They are joined by Earl Appleton on keyboards, electric bassist Joshua Thomas, guitarist Andy Bassford and percussionist Courtney Panton.

Monty Alexander's Jamaican heritage is combined with his bop-oriented piano on this date to create some enjoyable music. This was his first recording to make use of a steel drummer (Vince Charles), and Alexander also uses an oversized rhythm section with Jamaican guitarist Ernest Ranglin, bassist Andy Simpkins, both Duffy Jackson and Roger Bethelmy on drums and percussionist Larry McDonald. The repertoire (which includes four Alexander originals and George Benson's poppish "Weekend In L.A.") is mostly obscure, but the interpretations are lively and full of spirit.

Reissue with the latest remastering and the original cover artwork. Comes with a description written in Japanese. A nice little set from Monty Alexander – a Sunday Night session recorded with the same group, on the same weekend as his Saturday Night album! Monty Alexander's always great in a trio, but we really love the pianist when he's trying to add a little something extra to the mix – as he does here in a quartet performance that features some nice added percussion from Robert Thomas! The tracks have that warm glow and open flow that Alexander first started bringing to his music in the 70s – with sensitive rhythm work here from Reggie Johnson on bass and Ed Thigpen on drums – but the added percussion really helps things swing at a slightly higher level, giving a gentle kick to some cuts, while Monty's still able to open up with some warmly lyrical lines over the top.

For this fairly obscure Soul Note album, pianist Monty Alexander is joined by the virtuosic bassist Niels Pedersen and drummer Grady Tate who contributes warm baritone ballad vocals to "A Weaver Of Dreams" and "All Blues." Alexander gets in his best playing on his own "Renewal" and "I'll Remember April"; in addition the trio plays a composition apiece by Wes Montgomery and Milt Jackson.
